As we continue our journey in the planning and designing for delivery of courses as part of a hybrid model, we must keep in mind that principles of good assessment design such as equitable and appropriate assessment methods, clear and transparent criteria, and timely feedback, remain key considerations. Some assessment formats have proven particularly challenging when switching to online delivery, including, for instance, making alternative plans for a substantial diet of unseen, time-constrained, invigilated exams to be undertaken remotely.
The newly published LTE Bites No.7 ‘Designing Take Home Examinations’ staff guide outlines a range of ways that a traditional exam could be adapted for an online context.
This new resource builds on earlier guidance on planning for and designing ‘Flexible Assessment arrangements in a Hybrid Model’ and the ‘Considerations and Resources for Supporting Different Assessment Methods in a Hybrid Model’ resource.
